Accomplishing Alot

Even though I haven’t been blogging a lot, I have been crafting and even have a few finishes.  First, I finished the Spice of Life afghan.


It’s not perfect, but I am happy with it. It seems I got a little too relaxed with the last 10 or so rows and so my sides veered out.  I wanted to take the last 10 rows and the border out and re-do, but hubby wouldn’t hear of it.  He liked it just the way it is and has claimed it as his own.  He has even used it a few times :).   I learned so much crocheting this blanket.  Thank you to Sandra at Cherry Heart Blog and everyone involved for a wonderful Stitch A Long.  The pattern is still available on Sandra’s blog if you still want to give it a try.


I also finished a couple of scarves.  The first one was a gift to someone at my husband’s work.  I thought I had taken a picture of it, but can’t seem to find it.  This morning I finished the fun fiber scarf I was working on.  It turned out so pretty!  Love all the different fibers.


I can’t wait to wear it.  I really enjoyed kitting the pink/red/tan ribbon fiber on this one.

Last night I finished a beautiful little project that I worked on this week.


This is Winter Whisper by Passione Ricamo.  I call her Winter Princess.  It is for a contest.  Now that I have finished stitching her, I have to turn her into some kind of finish.  Can’t wait to see what I come up with ;). I stitched her on 16ct Aida Ice Goddess from Hand Dyed Fabrics by Stephanie.  LOVE this color and I am so in love with this design.  My photo doesn’t do it justice.

I also picked up Under the Moonlight mermaid from the framer this last week.  I had the framing done at Joann’s and I must say, the gal there did a great job.  Aside from crooked beads, I am very pleased with it.


Now I need to figure out where to hang her.  I have really run out of wall space.

I will be getting back to stitching The Raven Queen tonight.  I will post a progress photo soon.  I am getting close to finishing the stitching on this one.  What are you working on finishing these days?

    1. Thank you, Marsha. You can do that blanket. If you know basic stitches, you can do this one. If you downloaded all the sections of the Spice of Life afghan, there are great pictures to help you with all of the different stitches. I’d be happy to help you out when you get started. You can do it 🙂


  2. OOOhh, that scarf is beautiful, it looks so very soft. Well done on the blanket, its always so satisfying when you see it being used. 🙂
    Such stunning stitching projects, I love your work. So very delicate and fine. Lovely beads.
